comment Servitude to hereditary elite out of superstition
That the ruling hierarchy was appointed by God was one, in any case.

comment How accurate is Russell on liberalism versus fanaticism in war?
Well, how many wars have there been between liberal democratic states and fanatic states throughout history? WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, the wars in the middle east, and Gulf wars? Any more?

comment Is Howard Roark's potted history of architecture accurate?
@FelixGoldberg Yeah, I suspected you wanted something specific, which is why I didn't make an answer, I don't know the details. I've heard the one about stone columns being copies, and other architectural details once being functional but becoming non-functional, but I don't have any direct examples.

comment Is Howard Roark's potted history of architecture accurate?
The answer is "Yes". There is loads of examples of this. But not everything are copies of course. A lot of architecture comes out of trying to break technical limitations. From the Pyramids to the Eiffel tower.

comment Napoleon Research Paper Structure
I like that they call them "research papers" in 8th grade. It sounds ridiculous, but it is not.

comment Was the take off of neural computing research in the 80's due to Japan?
This is not a programming question and would likely not be on topic on Stackoverflow.

comment Asir's role in the Arab Revolt
At least that provides more context. See also en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idrisid_Emirate_of_Asir and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_ibn_Ali_al-Idrisi

Bah. I upvoted this before I read the last sentence. That was a mistake.

comment Who first in human history has promoted equality rights of all people?
That the law is valid for all is one part of equal human rights, but not in any way the only one. The examples you take up are not even rights in any way.

comment Who first in human history has promoted equality rights of all people?
It's an interesting example, but I don't think "presumed innocent" can be equated to "equal human rights".

Good question, although it would be good if you can say where you read this.

comment How did the Emperor Titus die?
Even so, some references to support this speculation is IMO required.

comment How did the Emperor Titus die?
OK, this is speculation, but maybe in this case that's allowed. But even so some references to this would be nice.

Let's not assume everyone knows everything about Nazi Germany. ;-)

comment What percentage of relocated Armenians died?
@T.E.D. In both cases those who forced the removal would at best not care if those removed lived or died, and quite likely preferred them to die. Therefore high percentages of dead are indeed expected. But even so, there is a world of difference between 24% and 90%.

comment What is the Holy Roman Empire?
@Oldcat Right, but the King of Germany title became King of the Romans, which later emperors had as a title as well.

comment What is the Holy Roman Empire?
@FelixGoldberg That's a compelling argument, it seems the Emperor's power was greater in the 10th to 12th century as compared to the late medieval period.

comment What is the Holy Roman Empire?
@FelixGoldberg It may have been more centralized, but it was still made up of independent areas, early on it was mostly Duchy's as I understand it, of which Otto I himself was only Duke of Saxony until he was elected King of Germans. He then Conquered the Kingdom of Italy, and was crowned Emperor after that. So the Kingship was elected, but that did not give him direct control over all of the areas of the empire, it still rested on the various Dukes and Princes. I assume the amount of power the Emperor had varied greatly over time.
